A reliable standby

I'm local and have been going here for more than a decade. The food is good - tasty, subtle flavours when required, and not "63 different ways to serve up Chinese Five Spice"! The atmosphere is pleasant and the staff friendly. Whether you're eating in or looking for a takeway, this is a good... read more

If you're lookin for the fastest serving Chinese restaurant in the west then this is certainly it! We were in and out as fast as a McDonald's restaurant! The food was pretty decent but very salty! I've never been in a Chinese where they serve your main course in bowls neither! Decent enough though!

Even though the staff were very nice, that didn't compensate for the low quality of food. We ordered some stir-fried dishes but they were basically tasteless! Also, the portion of the food was very small(a chicken dish only had five small slices of chicken maximum,and the mixed vegetables were mainly made up of few slices of onion and some bean... More

We ususally do not try Asian foods, as we don't like the smell and taste of seafoods but after walking all around the high street in Windermere and finding all the resturants as fully booked we decided to try a meal at this restuarant. It had reasonable number of customers so we thought it might be a nice restuarant. We... More

Now, I must start off by saying that we usually go to China Town in Birmingham (even though we live in Wales) so know what Chinese food should taste like and The Oriental Kitchen's food was bad. The restaurant was cold - a couple sitting in front of us did not take their coats off!! Our food of sizzling king... More

We visited after seeing reviews on trip advisor and I must say we weren't disapointed. Food was excellent and the staff were very attentive

There are several Chinese restaurants, and we chose this one simply because they had a table available! The surroundings are clean and pleasant and the menu is extensive. We did consider the pricing to be on the high side, but judging by how busy the restaurant was (in tourist-season) I suppose it's all based on supply and demand. The food... More
